Mike did an interview on Ireland AM, TV3 on 17th November 2004. He chatted with the two presenters for 10 minutes, then he played a verse of "Layla". The piece was repeated on 21st November as part of the week's highlights.

Mike also did an interview with Japanese TV on 11th February 2004, with 2 female TV presenters called "Imori" & "Ekuay". We hope we have got their names right. It was a kind of spoof travel show. They talked to Mike for a little while, then he played a verse of "Tears in Heaven". If you live in Japan, let us know if you saw it.

In 2003 Mike and John from the band recorded a short session for TYNE TEES TELEVISION. They filmed the duo's unplugged rendition of "Layla" plus a brief interview at Newcastle Opera House.
